clinton's statement so shocking is it comes from someone who's talked long and thus yasically in obama's favor, and in all fairness he still favors obama care, but now he's admitting that this president has a big problem with his credibility. and remember, this is a guy who knows all about credibility problems. >> well, putting aside your comment about president clinton having credibility problems. we know what happened the last time people went after president clinton on credibility problems. they lefte lost credibility. you left out that premise that this country is better off without obama care. i appreciate the outrage about the impact of this health care law. republicans have no idea how to fix it, nor do they want to fix it. nor do they have any workable ideas of their own. first question in the crossfire tonight, weekly standard editor bill crystal. and tom hartman. the first question to you, bill, i appreciate the outrage, as i said to newt earlier, but this is baloney. it's disingenuous, could you name one person who is truly interested in making constructive changes as senato

in practical terms is unless one of president obama's nominees is truly controversial, he or she almost surely will get confirmed, as long as democrats are in control of the senate. the reason is because what democrats did is they changed the rules so that instead of a 6 on-vote threshold for nominees to get through to overcome a filibuster, it is now a 51-vote threshold, a simple majority. the reason it's called a nuclear option is because the shoe is not always on this foot. democrats, as you well know, stephanie, are often in the minority, not just the majority. this could come back to haunt them when republicans are in charch of the senate and at the white house. >> thanks, dana. let's take a minute to turn back the clock. in 2005, i ran the campaign against the option when i worked for senator reid. back then. the republicans were the ones threatening to go nuclear. in the end democrats accepted a deal that put some of the day's most conservative judges on the bench, but today republicans won't -- throughout history they used the filibuster in extraordinary circumstances. today republican

the whoa nature of the obama economy and the degree to which the general -- is not creating the economic growth we would like? >> let's face it, the financial crisis was an unbelievable catastrop catastrophe. we've had many jobs of growth. i think the bigger issue is what is the changed role with the u.s. economy and global economy? that's something we have to make sure that people understand. when i talk to folks in delaware, how we can make businesses more successful frankly it comes down to the quality of the workforce. that's going on across the country. >> so from your perspective, how much of it is what you can do to make delaware competitive, and how much of it is caught up in this large i national economic challenge? >> i think to some extent the rising tide lifts all boats, but that being said, i don't think you'll find any governor prepared to sit back and wait for the national economy to get better on its own. we compete with each other all the time, but it certainly helps when the overall economy is growing. >> scott, the republicans here in washington, d.c., they're actually

, everybody. >> welcome back to cnn's coverage of president obama awarding the presidential medal of freedom to 16 extraordinary americans, be including former president bill clinton. the honorees ranged from the former president to talk show host oprah winfrey and the late astronaut sally ride. this is also the 50th anniversary of the award, which was brought to the nation by president john f. kennedy 50 years ago. here with me eleanor, let's start with you, the clintons and obamas, this is a big day historically. after doing this ceremony, participating in the ceremony, the 50th anniversary of the medal of freedom, they are going to going to john f. kennedy's gravesite to pay homage to a president who forever be young and popular. i think it's fair to say this is a low point for president obama. president clinton had some low points of his own. he's now got extraordinary popularity. he's a democratic icon. republicans even like him. he's provided a life raft to the this president in the past. they need each other. there's a third person that will be joining them at the gravesite, hillary c
. it's too bad for president obama, honoring kennedy seems to be a symbolic moment, rather than a chance to learn from him, maybe to change something. >> i loved it right until the last sentence. well, look -- >> don't you think he should learn? >> i think he should and is learning. even jfk, he had his bay of pigs moment. i think the senators know better than to county him out. we have senator ben cardin and senator tim cot. welcome to both of you. now, listen, i am concerned, because i have been watching all this footage from the kennedy era. it seems like there was a time when you had the parties cooperating, working together, now it looks like a big mess, even on something as simple as getting judges approved through the senate. we're going to have to have a nuclear option to get judges approved? what is going on in the senate? >> having a nuclear option is like having obama care 2.0. the fact of the matter is over the last 15 years we've seen only two defeated. so the fact of the matter as it result to getting judges approved, it's happening form the question we really shou
kennedy. it's deeply moving. barack obama loves the kennedy family. ted kennedy was his closest ally. if it wasn't for ted kennedy, it's not clear barack obama would have won in 2008 when he backed obama over hillary clinton. now you get the specter of the two titans of the democratic party, bill clinton and barack obama after being at an awards ceremony for the presidential medal now going there to together to pay respects. it's going to be a poignant moment and important moment. i think it's important i think to remember arlington and remember the flame, not just dallas and conspiracy theories on this 50th anniversary. >> and let me bring ennor clift into this part of the conversation. eleanor, as you take a look at this somber ceremony we're about to see, the laying of the wreath, playing of taps, no one's going to talk. they're just going to remember and reflect. what goes through your mind as you think about the 50 years later, if you will? >> this is a powerful democratic small d and big "d" tradition. you have jack kennedy which i think woke the country up and showed us all wh
obama care, all insurance policies must include ten essential benefits things like maternity care and prescription drug coverage. so if your plan doesn't meet that criteria, the insurance companies send you a cancellation notice. some private insurer will offer new plans. but for some people that could increase premiums. for other people who might qualify for a subsidy under obama care, it could be cheaper. >> what do these million people who just lost their policies in california supposed to do. >> there's a reason that they're doing this. that's because the obama administration wanted to get rid of what they called junk plans and make sure everyone has quality coverage. fortunately for californians, they have a state exchange working better than healthcare.gov but there are still reports of problems there too. >> this is not just happening in california. it's happening all over the country. >> well, that's right, wolf. and what you're seeing here is the administration and the insurance industry knew this was going to happen. the estimates vary widely from 7 million to 12 million

states to apologize to afghanistan, but will the obama administration find some other way to say "sorry." >>> and it's their first meeting since bill clinton's recent swipe at bobama care. so how much does the president need the former president? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we'll get to that congressman sentencing here in washington after a cocaine bust in just a second or two. >>> but first, we've got some breaking news coming into "the situation room." these are live pictures from the orlando international airport, where a jetblue flight bound for boston has just made an emergency landing after an evacuation slide deployed in-flight. the plane landed safely. no injuries are reported. we're getting more information. as soon as we do, we'll share it with you, but that story just coming in, a jetblue flight from orlando to boston. >>> back here in washington, a first-term congressman may have been lucky to avoid a jail term. republican trey radel of florida, today, pleaded guilty to cocaine possession and was given probation. the lawmaker who's called himself, a

on the line. after fighting for fairness, is it the rich riding highest in the obama economy? i'm christine romans, and this is "your money." it was just two weeks ago when it seemed the president had won his latest battle. >> the way business is done in washington has to change. >> but with an obama care fiasco bringing any momentum to a screeching halt, has he lost the war? a president whose signature legislation has turned into a national punchline. >> so if your doctor's only giving you three weeks to live, you are screwed, okay? >> whose spy agencies are tapping allies' cell phones. >> i guess the real question is who's in charge? the president doesn't seem to know if he's spying on our allies. >> the president says he didn't know about it. the only thing going the president's way these days, the economy. at least for those with the money to take part, the dow and the s&p 500 hit all-time highs again this week. corporate profits roaring back. and a housing rebound. but you need cash and good credit to get in the game. so what happened to promises of an economy focused on fairness? >> t
obama care rollout may have hurt democrat terry mcauliffe and his race for governor but not badly enough to spell defeat. he survives a nasty slugfest with tea party republican ken cuccinelli by three percentage points. ooh he just squeaked by. we assembled a full roster of correspondents and analysts to walk us through the results and what they mean to the rest of the country. first up, state of virginia and candy crowley. welcome, candy. so obama care and the government shutdown surely factors in the virginia race but so were women. here is the winner, terry mcauliffe. >> the truth is that this election was never a choice between democrats and republicans. it was a choice about whether virginia would continue the mainstream bipartisan tradition that has served us so well over the last decade, at a time when washington was often broken, just think about what virginia has been able to accomplish when we work together. >> so candy, in the end the tea party took a hit in virginia, but its candidate almost pulled out because of obama care. so how worried should the democrats be despite the

president obama's nominees. >> these nominees deserve at least an up or down vote, yes or no. but republican filibusters deny them a fair vote, any vote, and deny the president his team. gridlock has consequences. it's not only bad for president obama, bad for this body, the united states senate, it's bad for our country. >> minority leader, mitch mcconnell, says democrats are creating a crisis to distract attention from obama care. >> millions of americans are hurting because of a law washington democrats forced upon them. what do they do about it? they cook up some fake fight over judges, a fake fight over judges. that aren't even needed. >> our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, is on capitol hill following the dramatic, dare i say historic developmentans huge ramificat n ramifications. explain what is going on right now in congress. >> reporter: what's going on right now, wolf, as we speak, actually on the senate floor, is the fruits, if you will, of what the democrats tried to do. obviously republicans see it a whole different way. democrats successfully did, which is we're
